Clean up Nepal is a for-purpose, non-government organization registered in Nepal in 2014 that envisions communities having access to a solid waste management and water, sanitation and hygiene system with the associated knowledge and resources that will enable them to live a healthy, disease-free life. Clean up Nepal works to provide an enabling environment to improve sanitation and hygiene in Nepal by connecting, educating and empowering local communities and relevant stakeholders through a people-centered, strength based approach to improve community health, well-being and opportunity. Clean up Nepal achieves this by:
1. Improving public health and the environment through systematic improvements of existing solid waste management systems and helping set up new systems where none exist, and
2. Preventing deaths caused by hygiene related diseases through our sanitation and hygiene education programs, and construction of toilets at schools.
Clean up Nepal’s development work is underpinned by its working areas-- waste management, and water, sanitation and hygiene with the cross-cutting themes of sustainable livelihoods, and research and advocacy. To understand and address key challenges Nepalese face in waste management, Clean up Nepal also undertakes waste characterization, and research on the challenges faced in the waste sector, and potential improvements to existing waste management systems.
